The word theater comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation.
When we start to come together with scenes, what will we hope to tell our audiences about life and our current social situation. What aspects of mirror or society today. I have found that classical plays last because they remain relevant to the human condition. dealt with women's liberation in a male dominated society ( ), witch is still very relevant today. Shakespearean themes of love, jealous, biggotry, abition, and the human natures propensity to violence.
Shakuntala surely deals with love and social standing. But what else? I am not making a statement merely asking a question. What aspects themes Shakuntala can relate to people today. What is the overall theme this production will be using or conveying.
